Elopements. Let’s do more of them! Then do like Shannon + Austin and have the actual wedding and celebrate all over again publicly a few months down the road.
This incredibly fun day included not only this amazing couple’s courthouse elopement, but also a full-on session in Historic Downtown Pensacola as well as making Fort Pickens the sexiest place on earth with all their hotness.
Not even kidding. If you want to cheat and sneak a peek, just skip to the end of this post.
Side story: Not everyone knows this but my hubby and I technically “eloped” eight days before our wedding day. We did just like Shannon + Austin and had only our close family present for it! It remains one of the best moments of my entire life, and I know it will be the same for them!
Austin has to be commended for something though right here and now: the main reason he was excited for the separate elopement (besides getting to marry gorgeous Shannon) was that he wanted to wear this custom blue suit from Don Alans. You gotta love him for this! And then Shannon goes and wears the most amazing blue shoes EVER just to one-up him. You go girl.
Some of the hottest photos I’ve taken to date are definitely of them out on the beach. I mean…come on. Just LOOK at them! The windy nature of the day only added to the sweetness of the photos, too. You know me, I love a little movement in my images whenever possible!
October can’t get here soon enough, so we can celebrate all over again! This may be a tough set of images to top though. However I think these two are up for the challenge!
This photo describes Austin pretty easily. HAHA!
